Desktop Engineering Review of Mathematica 4
August 15, 1999--"Wolfram Research's $1495 Mathematica dominates the
symbolic math landscape...," writes Barry Simon,
veteran reviewer of math software and professor of
mathematics and theoretical physics at Caltech.
The review describes Mathematica 4's new features from
major enhancements in fast numerics to smaller details
like the addition of color-coded parentheses: "While
this isn't significant for simple expressions, it can
be invaluable for deeply nested parentheses."
He concludes, "Any Mathematica user, especially those who
do extensive numerical calculations, will certainly
want this upgrade."
